Woman Recreates Generations of Family Portraits (And It's Awesome)

Has someone ever told you "you look just like your mother"? Christine McConnell, an LA based photographer, proves just how much she looks like her ancestors. McConnell took a collection of family portraits from the females in her maternal line going back decades and recreated the images in her likeness.

The photographer used a combination of hair and makeup and some serious photoshop skills to recreate photos of her ancestors. McConnell inserts herself in the photos and then displays them as a side by side with the original.

The resemblance to her relatives is uncanny. The collection of shots go all the way back to McConnell's great-great-great-grandmother Martha who was born in 1821.
